Six Sentence Sunday: No Sweeter Love

In honor of Mother's Day, this week's Six Sentence Sunday snippet features Emily's closest friend, Jolene. Emily and Jolene are at the diner, and Jolene is staring at Ryan who's sitting in the corner booth.

"Do you have to be so obvious?"

“It’s one of my charms, hon.”

Though only ten years older than Emily, Jolene liked playing mother hen. Emily figured it came easily to her.

The woman ran her diner like she ran the town, dishing up good food and plain talk in equal portions.

Whether wielding a spatula at the diner or a gavel at town council meetings, Jolene was the boss—and everyone in Union knew it.

Thanks so much for stopping by. No Sweeter Lover releases May 17.
